    So I just picked up 6.5 SAUM and am ready to scope it. What are you guys using and recommend?

    I've got a set of Talley on my Tikka 7mm and Warne Mountain Tech rings on my Fierce 6.5 Creedmoor.

    Is it worth buying Nightforce or something else?

    Thanks guys!

    I use Seekins rings and have had no reason to try any other brand!
    They work just fine..Not the cheapest but worth their price!

    I’m a fan of APA and Seekins. Looking at Hawkins lately.

    I've got seekins rails and rings on two of my guns and they are great. easy to install, no lapping, and hold tight.

    I have been loyal to Seekins for years BUT.. I must admit that a hot little Spuhr number
    has caught my eye and I might have to give in?

    Seekins PMR. Or vortex PMR which are the same thing.

    If you want to get a little more adventurous, these are really cool. Not sure they work any better, but there is less messing with the scope to keep the crosshairs level while tightening. And it’s only two screws instead of 8 on the seekins rings.

    I use TPS TSR rings when I'm trying for light weight. The Seekins/Vortex PMR are nice and stout for heavy scopes or hard recoil. These 2 brands are the best value in my opinion. Badger, Hawkins, Leupold Mark 4, and Nightforce are all great rings if you don't mind spending a bit more.

    All of the above with a rail. Talleys if not.
